  1. Yes, you don't see it that often but sometimes guys will wear a tan pad on the top and a black pad on the bottom or vice versa, if you search on a photo of Dale Scott, or Jerry Lane, I'm pretty sure they both did it Sent from my SM-G950U using Tapatalk

  5. even the pros! And even if you do a TWO-TONE, that looks pretty cool as well!
  6. Are you happy now that you have the last word? Did calling me a troll make you feel better? I'll let you have the last word, ....this portion of this discussion is over.
  7. Cora made it political, I posted my opinion on that move. You're the one who seems to keep poking.
  8. Any pad fits any All Star mask, ... you may however, have to slit the chin strap to go around the center chin (central lower mask) bar ....
  9. they were investigating the Sox parallel with the Astros investigation Cora was the mastermind at the Astros (benchcoach) .... so when doing the math ... yeah, he's guilty. Karma for being an assclown and turning down the trip to the White House .......douchebag
  10. LUC pads, silly man! https://www.all-starsports.com/fm25ump-luc-black.html

  12. That's why I used a in my post too! It's a very valid argument, don't get me wrong, ... he was a genius for sure, ..I just look at it in a more specific way that's all. For you sir: Red Barchetta from Exit...Stage Left Mystic Rhythms from the Counterparts Tour (Detroit stop) AND ...this tribute I just found .... A portion of Hemispheres II from the Hemispheres album
  13. ala All Star FM25 ... no big deal .....
  14. Welcome! Where did you read about wearing your plate shoes and shin guards when at the tailor? If it was on this site, then that same info should have recommendations/instructions also. NO CUFFS!!!!!!!
  15. All UE members, colleagues and fellow umpires, It is with a very heavy heart that I relay the news that our friend and brother Grayhawk (Steve) lost his wife Christine on Saturday, January 11th. I have asked Steve personally if it was ok for me to post this. Please keep Steve and his entire extended family in your prayers. I can't even begin to imagine what he's going through, but knowing there are others thinking about him can only help, even if it's just a little bit. Hold close to the ones you love, and never think that you can say "I love you" too much! From everyone here at Umpire-Empire.com, @grayhawk ... Our very deepest condolences. You and your family are in our thoughts and prayers!
  16. Ok, hang on..... you don't have a Douglas but you want new padding? Sorry, I think I'm missing something [emoji16] Sent from my SM-G950U using Tapatalk
  17. Do you have a Douglas? A "refurb" is a cleaning, and is $50. Replace t-hooks? if the hooks are rusty, he'll give you those.
  18. can't believe this is still available!?!
  19. Email him, he'll give you a breakdown, just ask him what you're looking for
  20. I too am a drummer, and of course, NP was undoubtedly one of my inspirations as with so many other drummers worldwide. Greatest rock drummer of all time, I'm not sure, and opinions of such are subjective, not objective. I've always called him the greatest rock drum part arranger and composer ... that's MY take on it. Doesn't matter. He was probably THE MOST influential drummer to MILLIONS as stated above. @HokieUmp .....anyone here is allowed to "@" you. We can't be denying others opinions here, it is a forum, yes? A VERY VERY private person. Obviously because; 1) he died on Tuesday 1/7, and it was released to the public on Friday 1/10. 2) NO ONE knew he was battling brain cancer. 3) Many interviews confirmed this, and is supported within his lyrics in "Limelight" .... "I can't pretend a stranger is a long awaited friend". @Richvee ...as much as I agree with your sentiment and would also have loved to have chatted with him, ... it would have never happened .... he'd never let it happen. That said, I think it's one of the great things about him. The Professor will be sorely missed, but thankfully, he's left us with an unbelievable legacy and incredible discography of music! Rest in peace, sir ... you've left a beautiful mark on the world.
